Windows 2003 Group Policies

I have a problem with a member server, that had a group policy applied to it that set the security, but it seemed to cause a few issues with some services starting. So I moved it out of the OU and it seems to have still kept the settings.
Is there a way of making sure it drops the group policy that has been set previously.

I have looked on the KB and there is nothing.

On Windows 2003 you can force the policy to refresh with "gpupdate" or there's the old fashioned way: Reboot.

Once refreshed you can use "rsop.msc" (Resultant Set of Policy tool) to confirm exactly what policies are still effecting the machine which would help trace the source.

If you use rsop.msc is it still coming from the policy you moved? RSOP will tell you exactly which policies are applied and which group (or local) policy object is applying them. RSOP will also show any policy processing errors which would be useful for tracing the problem.

Do you have more than one DC? If you do, check that replication is working correctly and both DCs agree about what policies are where - or what computer accounts are where. You can do this from AD Users and Computers by right clicking on your domain name and selecting "Connect to Domain Controller".

Check the Event Log on the server itself for Group Policy processing errors to see if anything is going wrong there.
